Prior to starting the company Fancy Hat Multimedia founder Michael Bou-Nacklie worked with clients around the world with extensive experience in the Middle-East creating content for clients and news organizations even leading him to create content for the second Gulf War invasion in 2004 while working as a reporter in Saudi Arabia. In 2009 Fancy Hat Multimedia was officially established in the United States with its head office in Washington DC following receiving his masters degree from Ohio University in Visual Storytelling and Photojournalism.
Since then the company has expanded to California creating real estate films and photography for property clients as well as documentary films and corporate films for a variety of clients including Google, Facebook, McDonnell Douglas and many more.
